My stomach was GROWLING today.
Not the internal, I feel it rumbling sort of way, but the OMG my co-workers are giving me funny looks because it’s so loud way.
I had a one hour 11:00 am meeting that turned into a two and a half hour meeting – as they typically do – and by the time I got out at 1:30 I was done for.
I did snack on some cinnamon pita chips before the meeting, but they didn’t do me much good.
After we hit the two hour meeting mark, my mind started to wander and I managed to think up a killer combination for lunch using the limited supply of food in my fridge.
I was going for a green bean salad here.
I started with a base of chopped fresh green beans then added sweet potato, mozzarella, tempeh, tomato, peanuts, and tossed it all in a ginger sesame dressing.
The whole combination was very fresh and perfect on a hot summer day. It also did a great job in quieting the growls coming from my stomach.
On the way out the door I grabbed a piece of taffy for the road, but didn’t feel like grabbing the camera. 🙂
On the way back to the office I finally finished Eat Pray Love. Now, that I’ve officially
read listened to the entire book, I feel I can give my full review – I loved it!
I mean, yes, the India portion was a bit on the boring side, but I largely blame that on the fact that I get very sleepy in the car and just happened to be listening to the part during a four hour road trip. Admittedly, that was a bad move on my part.
I really enjoyed how the audio version of the book was read by the actual author. I think that made the story so much more believable and relatable because it was all in her words and her voice.
I enjoyed how she kept it real, she didn’t sugar coat anything, and that she was truly living her life the way she saw fit. I can’t wait to see the movie and I can’t wait to
read listen to the follow up Committed.
Does anyone just happen to have Committed on CD that I can borrow?
I know that I could technically get it at the library, but long story short they won’t give me a library card. I could go on, but no point in having people judge me for breaking the rules. I’ll just leave it at that. 😉
